Publisher Paradox Interactive reported that Cities: Skylines has sold 12 million copies across all platforms, doubling its previous record of 6 million around the start of 2019.

Originally released in 2015, the game finally made its way to the Switch three years later. Although it retained much of the same functionality as previous versions, the Switch version had a plethora of performance issues, earning itself a rather mediocre score of 5/10 in our review.

Mariina Hallikainen, CEO of developer Colossal Order, had the following to say about the latest milestone:

“We appreciate the activity of the Cities: Skylines community and are thrilled to see them sharing their passion for city building games with us. It has been a dream come true to see the game resonate with so many gamers for all these years. We continue to listen to the feedback we receive and pledge to work hard to bring even more joy to our fans in the future.”

To celebrate this milestone, an anniversary patch has been implemented for the game on PlayStation and Xbox. Unfortunately, it looks like Switch owners weren’t invited to this particular party.
